Auburn DE Carl Lawson gaining praise from opponents

The attention in college football is all on the NFL Scouting Combine as many former players look to boost their draft stock before April. However, that doesn’t mean we couldn’t start to look ahead towards future drafts.

At the Combine in Indianapolis, two SEC offensive linemen talked about some of the best defensive linemen they have faced in the past. The linemen, projected top pick Laremy Tunsil and teammate Fahn Cooper, both agreed that Auburn defensive end Carl Lawson is the best they have ever faced.

After a successful freshman season in 2013, where Lawson recorded four sacks and an interception, he redshirted in 2014 and only played in seven games this past year. However, he still looks to be a player that could make an immediate impact in the NFL.

If he is garnering this much attention from two linemen that could be starting come September, imagine what could happen after he plays one more year with the Tigers.
